KUALA LUMPUR: A businessman from Melaka, who won Jackpot 2 several years ago, has finally hit the big Jackpot.

He won the Jackpot 1 prize money of over RM33.2 million (RM33,208,678 to be exact) on Saturday’s Magnum 4D draw.

The man paired his car plate number and personal favourite number to play the Magnum 4D Jackpot, which he has been doing for two decades.

He permutated one of the 4D numbers and bought the combination for only RM48.

The pair of numbers that won him the massive prize were 3895 (2nd Prize) and 7998 (3rd Prize).

“I’m speechless. I can’t believe it,” he told Magnum officials when he arrived at Magnum headquarters to claim his prize recently.

The man said he found out his winnings through the Magnum mobile application's “Scan A Ticket” feature, “a convenient way to check your results with just one tap".

“I play Magnum 4D Jackpot every draw day, especially when the Jackpot amount starts growing over RM10m,” he added.

When asked how he planned to use his prize, the man said he needed time to think about how he would spend his winnings.

“I need time for this to register. First, maybe a grand holiday as I have never been out of the country all my life and then later to buy a new home. I’ll definitely share it with my family,” said the man, who is in his 40s.

A representative from Magnum said: “Congratulations to our winner. We wish him all the best for the future. We are truly happy to be able to witness a life-changing experience when our customer wins with us.

“The Magnum 4D Jackpot 1 prize money was above RM30 million since June 29, 2019, and we have been waiting for someone to win big with us.

"Within six months, Magnum Jackpot 1 prize money has exceeded RM 30 million twice and we created two millionaires and numerous partial winners.

“We in Magnum believe that our games give our customers the opportunity to 'Live Life Your Way',” said the spokesman.
